I've been searching
for a versatile protein source for cooking that contains all the
essential amino acids and is not flavored to taste like meat. Are
you aware of such a protein source or do you know the recipe for
a complete source of protein? I'm assuming it would be a combination
of soy & gluten, although I am unsure of the correct ratio or
really aren't many "incomplete" proteins that are actually
completely missing in certain amino acids. However, most weight
lifters use some form of protein powder. Soy protein isolate tops
the USDA nutrient database for protein per Calorie and has a favorable
distribution of amino acids.

of the bad press soy has been getting lately I've been using a pea
protein powder occasionally but I really don't think there's a problem
getting enough protein on a wholefood vegan diet. If you ate nothing
but a selection of 93 common vegetables for your day's Calorie requirements
you'd still get ~ 250% of the RDA for the limiting amino, methionine.
The other 9 aminos would range up to 1100% of the RDA.
